The COVID-19 vaccine will be distributed in phases to groups of people at increased risk of COVID-19 exposure or severe COVID-19 illness. Phased distribution will take time, with vaccines not expected to be widely available to all New Yorkers until mid-2021. The different phases of COVID-19 vaccine distribution are determined by New York State (NYS) and may change. New York City is committed to ensuring that access to the vaccine is fair and equitable.
The table below reflects our best estimate of who will receive the vaccine when. We will update our guidance regularly as we learn more. Please check nyc.gov/covidvaccine for the latest information, including when and where to get vaccinated.
